This course is designed to be an intensive introduction to comics and narrative, from the very first stage to having the comic printed. We will begin by looking at comics and storytelling, then create storyboards and compose our comic pages. We will go over techniques for inking, coloring, and even lighting and special FX. In the last week, we will also talk about how to promote your work and show your project to a publisher!

Miki has been an amazing instructor. He has been really helpfull with all the students and provided great feedback and advice and the lectures have been really useful and interesting.
This class was incredible. The curriculum Miki has prepared went above and beyond what I was expecting. I will be recommending this class to everyone I know!
Miki did a great job of helping my panel to panel story telling ability and I feel that my growth in this class will be instrumental to my building a storyboarding career.
I learn a lot about composition of a page and storytelling, learn new tools to make my process faster and was able to make my drawing process both better and faster.
This course was awesome.! Help me specifically to me to put storys in a comic layout. Also, gave me great directions about inking, color and light. All of it greatly explained by Mikki!
This is not only the best Comics related class I’ve taken, but also one of the Best Art classes I’ve Ever taken, period. It helped my understanding of the entire Storytelling process, and especially how to apply light and Color and how those elements enhance the Narrative.
